Entering a dark room with flickering lighting overhead, the viewer is immediately confronted by a taxidermied large predatory cat encased in resin. The rest of the space is filled with various sculptural pieces (each by four separate artists) which are awkwardly placed and make it difficult to move about the white cube of Team Gallery Inc. The piece that captures the most attention is a very large aquarium filled to the top with water and aqua-scaped with a segmented welded metal cube in the middle of it. Upon closer inspection, the metal cube is actually the dwelling of 7 or 8 electric eels. This tank is rigged up to the central lighting of the gallery and the power of the eels accounts for all the electricity that cause the flickering of the track lighting above. While the tank is an interesting commentary on power systems and maybe even our current environmental state for that matter, the rest of the gallery space is filled with uninteresting assemblage sculptures.
Overall the gallery was too dark to enjoy the details of most of the work, and besides the wonderment of seeing live electric eels, there seemed to be little if any dialogue between the pieces from each separate artist. While the showing had it’s moments the non cohesiveness of the sculptures created a lack luster experience that isn’t worth a second look.
